KINESTHETIC SKILLS

BRIDGING THE GAP FROM REHAB TO PERFORMANCE

Hi and welcome on my page!

My name is Lubomir Kafonek, I come from Czech Republic but for last couple of years I'm based together with my wife and daughter in Trondheim, Norway.

Kinesthetic Skills is my dream project which is allowing me to combine, develop and share my skills within physiotherapy, exercise physiology and coaching.

Through the K-Skills I offer number of different workshops with focus on movement patterns analysis, mobility improvements, movement awareness and performance enhancing.
